$110,000 to be Paid in Federal Fraud Case

A former Forcht Bank employee has been sentenced to home incarceration and ordered to pay more than $110,000 in restitution on federal fraud charges. Kenneth E. Harris, formerly of Greensburg, who now lives in Bowling Green, was charged earlier in U.S. District Court and accused of making fraudulent loans to people without their knowledge. Harris pleaded guilty to the crimes in March and said he took the money from the fraudulent loans and used it for his own benefit. Now, Harris was ordered to pay $110,575.26 in restitution.
